Day of Disruption Favorite 



Mar 16 2023



Text by Jerusalem Post Staff


The "Day of Disruption" kicked off earlier than planned early on Thursday morning when dozens of Israeli artists painted a red line on the road to Israel's High Court of Justice in Jerusalem.
Launching another day of marches, demonstrations and road closures as part of the nationwide judicial reform protest, the artists' demonstration represents the "inseparable connection between an independent judiciary and the freedoms of speech and expression through art, leisure, culture and sports," as per protest organizers.
Five of the artists were arrested, Israel Police reported.
The protesters noted in a statement that the paint used was designed specifically for the demonstration, noting that it is "easy to paint over."
At 11 a.m., there is expected to be a protest of artists and "people of culture" in Tel Aviv at HaBima Square.
